AUGUST 1, 1996 - AUGUST 4, 2009

Thank you for the unconditional love we shared over the last 13 years. We spent every day together and our morning walks were the best part of each day. It is one of the things I will miss the most. You were such a good girl, every day was precious. You were loved dearly throughout your life, in death you are loved still. I will always remember the special greeting only you could give me every single time I walked through the door. You were my precious Shadow... your name described you well. All the special memories of you will keep you alive in my aching heart forever.

You were never sick until now and for that I will be forever grateful. The last month was so hard for you. I wish we could have had more time together, but out of my love for you, I knew it was time for you to cross over the Rainbow Bridge to paradise where Timber and Maggie are waiting for you. You will all watch over us and when it is time, everyone you loved and loved you in return will all be together again.

Rest in peace my beautiful Shadow, I will see you again someday... until then I will hold you in my heart.

Love, Mommy
